It was soo much fun, beautiful views even with the below average weather. Felix and co did everything they could to get us onto the boat and into sky as we were only around for the weekend. Amazing experience with awesome people!

Thank you for your feedback. There was a mistake done on the Grabone deal where it was meant to not be available over long weekends, so my apology that it was not clear enough. Glad you enjoyed your flight though, we absolutely love Parasailing too....More

Hi Larry, Yes that is our maximum weight but if the conditions are perfect no problems to fly you together. If not then we would just fly you separately which is just as awesome.
